I use adult ones. The baby ones are dull and clamp at a weird angle in my opinion or at least all mine did. I did file them at first because it scared me with those baby ones. The first time I tried the adult ones it was SO much easier so I've stuck with those. I usually do Jonas's in the high chair now. Hands I can get done all at one time but feet I usually have to do a few at a time and keep going back lol. He's too wiggly with those!

Thanks so much Mamas! We have lot of different techniques to try now! I will get some of the scissors at BRUS tomorrow! I'm also going to try the biting and the filing! We also have tons of adult clippers!
We may end up with a combo strategy here but I am definately going to be more involved.
I hesitated bout clipping during sleep even though we starfted clipping them that way becuse I HATE to wake her up. But maiming is MUCH WORSE!
THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
